In September Milwaukee Tools will launch a new battery that represents a huge step towards the cordless job site. The M18 Red Lithium High Demand 9.0 battery pack is designed to deliver up to five times more run time, 35 percent more power and run 60 percent cooler than conventional lithium ion batteries.
It is optimized for the company’s high draw M18 Fuel tools that need an extensive amount of sustained power and run-time for applications such as high demand drilling, chipping, cutting and grinding.
“We’re taking the extreme performance of M18 Fuel and bringing up to two times the performance of our industry-leading 5.0 XC battery to everything in this system. And because this new solution is fully compatible with the M18 system our users have come to know and love, they won’t experience a loss of productivity,” said Paul Fry, Milwaukee Tool vice president of product marketing. “This is a leap in lithium-ion technology that completely changes the perception and expectations of what cordless tools are capable of.”
Workers will immediately notice a significant performance improvement when they install the new battery in their existing M18 tools. It is designed to deliver more work per charge and more work over the life of the pack than any other power tool on the market regardless of voltage. Because it runs significantly cooler than other lithium ion battery packs, users will be able to push their cordless tools harder and longer than ever before.
The High Demand 9.0 Battery Pack will be sold as an accessory to the M18 System and in select M18 Fuel kits.
